Sanders v. Clinton on Kissinger

It was a highlight of their last debate. This article provides why whether you bask in Kissinger's glow or despise him is a key indicator of the divide in the Democratic Party as played out in the Presidential contest. An excerpt:

"Hillary Clinton exists in a world where 'Henry Kissinger is a war criminal' is a silly opinion held by unserious people. Her problem? Lots of those silly and unserious people want to wrest control of the Democratic Party away from its current leadership, which is exemplified by people like Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders’ critique of Clinton is not that she’s cartoonishly corrupt in the Tammany Hall style, capable of being fully bought with a couple well-compensated speeches, but that she’s a creature of a fundamentally corrupt system, who comfortably operates within that system and accepts it as legitimate. Clinton has had trouble countering that critique because, well, it’s true. It’s not that she’s been bought, it’s that she bought in."
